The Bomb-Monger's Daughter

A novel by

Anasuya's father--a notorious financier and arms dealer--has disappeared. Has he been kidnapped--or murdered--or just plain dropped out of sight? His daughter claims a complete lack of interest in her father's fate. But why is she hiding on a Greek island with her mother's second husband (now her own lover), and writing obsessively in her notebooks about her father and the other members of her family? Slowly her diary starts to make sense of the disappearance--or, at least it appears to. But all is not what it seems, and Anasuya may not be the most reliable of witnesses. As much a study of strange family interactions as it is a thriller, THE BOMB-MONGER'S DAUGHTER is absolutely compulsive reading. As Mary Lord has said: "[This] is an exceptionally well-written and -crafted [novel] for intelligent readers who enjoy a good story just for the hell of it."
